Though we are drawn towards union, we also wont flee said union. I call this “burning bush time.” We are drawn to the miraculous. How amazing, wondrous, cool. We feel awe. But, as we know, awe is very close to fear. So, as cool as this burning bush is, it might be nicer to fall back into my couch with a trashy novel, or binge on my favorite TV show.
We need to dive deep, experience the transformative and sobering joy of surrender on a regular basis. If we are to shift our identification with the ephemera of this beautiful and challenging material world to spirit, to the unchanging, trustworthy, and nourishing oneness of Being, then we must have regular experiences of resting in God’s arms, or dissolving into the dark-light of fertile Oneness.
Our spirit buddies, sanghas, and therapist/healers, can help create a safe space for regular deep diving.
Safe and supported use of plant medicines, breath-work, drumming and chanting, rigorous contemplative or religious practices all can help us to relax into wholesome surrender and help us regain our trust in LIFE/Spirit/the Tao.
